Pros: This course deserves more respect. It has a huge diversity in holes and is set in a beautiful spot. Great views of Hunger Mountain and Stowe. Lots of elevation changes, some holes are long and some are technical.
Cons: Baskets are rusty. Pretty poorly marked. Grass gets super long in the summer and much of the course is swampy at many times of the year. Easy to lose discs in the summer.
Other Thoughts: This course definitely deserves more credit, just for its diversity alone. Very fun to play.

needs a weedeater!
Pros: *Beautiful setting in a city park with mix of open & wooded, slightly hilly landscape; features an awesome stream on a few of the holes in the middle
*Great views of the green mtns
*2 sets of tees - white & blue
*A lot of potential if it was trimmed up -- notably the hole before you get down to the stream (#8?) that is a short hole throwing down a steep hill...blind now & very easy to lose a disc, but would be awesome if you could see where you were throwing
*Easy to find
*Near Ben & Jerry's icecream factory!
Cons: *No signage - while there were a few signs remaining from a May '08 tourney, most had just the tee markers & numbers -- no distances or visuals of what the hole looked like
*Many blind teeshots - on 4 or 5 holes I had to walk down the length of the fairway to figure out where I was throwing, which sucks when the hole loses 50+ feet in elevation and you have to walk back up to throw - several are blind to the point of errant shots resulting in lost discs
*Very overgrown. Knee high grass on many holes; i was losing discs in the fairway. On several of the holes trees must have been small when the fairway was designed & have grown tall blocking any realistic shot -- needs some serious trimming
*Baskets in bad shape for being installed only 6 years ago -- already completely rusted out; maybe this is a northern thing due to the weather?
*Mostly dirt teepads -- some were on natural rock & a few pads. I played in the rain and footing was not great.
Other Thoughts: I played blue tees & shot a 54 with plenty of birdies & bogeys. It's a short par-3 course with only a few holes 350'+. Some very good short holes with tight lines & nice tee/basket spots.
This course has potential to be a lot better, mainly with some heavy trimming -- a lot of the holes had no lines or ran a high probability of losing a disc because they were overgrown & blind. There were also many holes requiring a walk down a fairway to see the basket, then having to walk back to throw.
I'd play again, but more to walk around in the beautiful park than for the course

Great Place to Play!
Pros: Great gradual increase of difficulty level, from Basket 1 to 18.
Walking Path lead "naturally" to the next Basket
Other Thoughts: Very Calm and Beautifull place to play.
